About Me

Pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood have changed my life in profound ways that I never knew it could.  I am a Certified Lactation Counselor, La Leche Leader, a Bradley teacher, and a mother.  For over nine years, I have been teaching out of love and joy for helping families achieve their childbirth and breastfeeding goals.

I accredit a lot of this to the decisions my husband and I made as a family.  Natural childbirth was one of them that helped to provide the best and safest birth experience for our family.

We took Bradley classes in 2009, and we learned a tremendous amount of information which allowed us to be an informed, expecting couple.  We discussed our options with our doctors who were very supportive.  For us, a natural childbirth was safest and eliminated the risk of medication being given to our baby, who I have been delicately protecting for the past nine months.  This also meant an experience that was safer for me and with an easier recovery.  We wanted the first time we met our baby to be an enriching bonding experience where baby nor mother were drowsy.  Additionally, we wanted the freedom to walk around, squat, or choose any laboring position that was comfortable instead of being confined to a bed.

Continuing our nutrition, exercises, and relaxation, we anxiously awaited.  In November 2009, our beautiful baby girl, Lucia Rose, joined us after a natural childbirth at the Florida Hospital Tampa.  The result was a Healthy Mother, Healthy Baby, and Healthy Family.  Lucia began breastfeeding immediately.  Every day since has been a Blessing.

In 2011, we were Blessed again to be expecting our second child.  We continued following the exercise, nutrition, and relaxation recommendations that are core in the classes we teach.  At 34 weeks, the baby was still breech, and our doctors started to mention the idea of a cesarean section.  However, a natural childbirth was still so important for our health and the health of our baby.  We continue with our plans and techniques.  The baby turned head down, as most babies truly do, with no medical intervention or surgery.  In December 2011, our beautiful baby girl, Gabriela Marie, joined our family after another natural childbirth also at the Florida Hospital.  Once again, the result was a Healthy Mother, Healthy Baby, and Healthy Family. 

We look forward to helping you to reach the birth experience you are looking for!


The whole point of woman-centered birth is the knowledge that a woman is the birth power source.  She may need, and deserve, help, but in essence, she has, and will have the power. -  Heather McCue
